Giffords on “space guy” Obama

In her speech Thursday, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords also talked about going to the White House earlier this week to be a part of the teleconference Preisdent Obama had with the crews of the space shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station. Besides calling Obama “so fabulous”, she said that she believes that the president is sincerely interested in space. “He calls himself a space guy, and I actually believe he is,” she said. “I think that he’s delivering in terms of substance, but in terms of budget as well.” She cited several reasons for this assessment, from his hosting that teleconfeernce to his choice of a book that he and the First Lady read to second graders last month: The Moon Over Star.
